Despite boasting the immeasurable talents of George Weah Jr. and lots of Bulgarians you've never heard of, PFC Kaliakra Kavarna has had a poor run of form lately, failing to pick up any points in its past five league matches. As it languishes eight points from safety in the Bulgaria A PFG relegation zone, the club president has taken drastic action: Wages will be suspended until the team starts winning. Reports the Daily Mail:

Struggling Bulgarian club Kaliakra have decided to stop paying their players' wages after a run of defeats.

'The decision will be in force until further notice,' said Kaliakra president Ventsislav Vasilev.

He told the team they needed to fight not just to win games, but also to earn their salaries.

Club coach Radostin Trifonov has welcomed the move, saying "I was thinking about resignation but now I'm an optimist." Presumably, he'd be less enthusiastic about the decision if his wages were also being cut.
